Three types—MD5-Challenge, one-time passwords (OTP), and Generic Token Card—are required by the specifications for EAP. A few of the EAPMethods have been documented in IETF RFCs, but the majority are proprietary. Some of the more common methods are EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS, PEAP, and EAP-FAST. This book is primarily concerned with the process of authentication and not the particular method employed, so particular EAPMethods are discussed only briefly.

The port on the Authenticator connecting the LAN/WAN might be faulty. The LAN/WAN between the two devices might be faulty. Or the shared secret might be misconfigured. Those are some of the possibilities. In any event, the Authenticator will try for a long time to access the defined servers. 10. If there is no Authentication Server willing to communicate with the Authenticator, then it has options. Usually, it will continue to attempt to find a valid RADIUS server, leaving the port in an unusable state.

Typically, these additional iterations are caused by the user on the Supplicant not knowing the proper credentials, or mistyping them, thus causing the Authentication Server to reject them. The process for Generic Token Cards is very similar to that for One-Time Passwords. The information contained in the exchange is different, but the actual flow is essentially the same. The use of a Token card will always require that the user enter information rather than use credentials supplied when the Supplicant was booted.
